I joined Ellacotts’ Agriculture & Property team back in July 2013 as a Trainee Accountant, after graduating from Loughborough University, where I studied Chemistry & Sports Science.

During my time at Ellacotts, I have successfully completed my AAT and ICAEW qualifications and I am now and Assistant Manager.

My day-to-day tasks include preparing accounts for a mixture of sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and LLP’s and preparing tax computations, VAT returns and tax returns. I was also fortunate enough to be trusted in planning and distributing work throughout the agricultural team.

Ellacotts adopt a trainee-mentoring programme, which operates very successfully. This system has been of great benefit and support throughout my time here at Ellacotts. I had no prior accounting knowledge before joining Ellacotts, but was given excellent support from my mentor, which allowed me to pick it up as quickly as possible.

I enjoy being involved in a variety of work and interacting with clients, both in the office and at agriculture shows and events. I also look forward to broadening my knowledge and experience further.

Outside of work, I find myself playing football, cricket or running the odd half marathon (slowly)!
